Corsair Katar Pro Wireless Gaming Mouse Review

How Much Does it Cost?
The Corsair KATAR PRO Wireless Gaming Mouse is available now on Amazon for a very reasonable £44.99. That’s a pretty fair price for the hardware on offer, and certainly very competitive with the rest of the market. The sub 1ms response time of the Slipstream connectivity make this one of the strongest wireless gaming mouse options out there right now.
Corsair pride themselves on being the best at what they do and the same is true even in their more affordable products. The KATAR PRO Wireless isn’t rewriting the rule book, and in this price bracket, it was never intended to. It’s just a straight forward wireless gaming mouse with all the expected features in the right places really.
The hardware choices really make this mouse great. There are some lovely quality mechanical switches in there that have a gorgeously tactile and audible click to them, that’s subjective I know, but I really do think they’re great. The PixArt PMW3325 is superb, with really smooth tracking even at higher DPI levels. The durable plastic body and the PTFE feet look and feel great too. The only affordable looking thing in the box was the AA battery, but that’s no big deal.
I like what this mouse has to offer, it feels comfortable in the hand, it’s not too heavy, and the sensor is smooth as silk and deadly accurate. most gamers don’t need much more than that from a mouse. For daily working and some gaming, it’s nice to have the freedom of wireless and still get sub 1ms response times. Of course, with impressive battery life, you’re unlikely to be left without power any time soon. It may look understated, but the KATAR PRO Wireless is a bit of a sleeper.
Should I Buy One?
It’s hard to beat this mouse in terms of performance at this price range. At just £45 you’re getting class-leading wireless technology, performance and great build quality combined. Working from home during lockdown? It’ll be the reliable and comfortable productivity tool you need, and a great gaming mouse for the evenings.
